What is your favorite movie?
When it comes to a favorite movie it’s pretty much anything with Cary Grant… serious ones like “North by Northwest”, “Notorious” and “An Affair to Remember” to silly ones like “My Favorite Wife”, “The Philadelphia Story” or “Arsenic and Old Lace”.
Do you have a personal motto or quote that inspires you?
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain
In other words… go for it!
If you could interview one person, living or deceased who would it be?
I would love to interview and tour the White House with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. I grew up watching her survive such a difficult time and she did it all with such grace. Although most people just remembered “Jackie” for her iconic fashion, I believe Jackie could give great insight into the happenings of the day and was making her opinions known as First Lady… but it was saved for behind the scenes.
What is your favorite way to spend a day off?
I love to not necessarily have a plan at all and take a little road trip without any agenda.
What sports team are you a big fan of?
When it comes to sports I am a hardcore Packer fan. My mom grew up in Wisconsin and my cousin married Packer Mike McCoy (defensive tackle #76). When it comes to college football though I am a huge Ohio State Buckeye fan. I grew up in Columbus and graduated from Ohio State University. In the last few years I have really started to follow soccer. My oldest daughter plays soccer in Onalaska and we like to watch the pros play too.
What one thing would you like to do better?
I love to cook and bake, but I want to be a gourmet cook. I would really like to be able to whip up unbelievable French and Italian cuisine and desserts.
What is your favorite food?
My Favorite food is chocolate, but not just any chocolate…it has to be the darkest, richest chocolate you can find.
